I Love A Mystery Book Club

This book group meets on the
2nd Saturday of the month at 10:30am at the library. 

Origin Story:
The “I Love a Mystery” Book Club spun out of a Maine Humanities “Let’s Talk About it Series” called “Refreshing the Whodunnit” that BHML hosted in the winter of 2017.  The group got it’s name from the monthly article that volunteer (and retired librarian) Shirley Sirois writes for the library column in the Boothbay Register.
